The mission of the Leasing Foundation is to support the leasing and asset finance industry in Europe, Asia and Africa by providing focus and organisation for charitable activities, by performing rigorous, challenging and relevant research in areas that impact the industry, and by seeking opportunities to sustain the industry by developing people in the industry.
The Foundation is an initiative of CHP Consulting’s Chief Operating Officer Andrew Denton, and IAA Advisory’s Chairman Derek Soper, and is advised by a board of Governors from across the industry.
Andrew and Derek are joined as directors of the Foundation by Professor Peter Thomas, Director of the Manifesto Group, and Tarun Mistry, Partner and Head of Grant Thornton UK LLP’s Leasing & Consumer Finance advisory practice.
The Leasing Foundation has also established the Leasing Foundation Fellowship, an invitation-only community of exceptional leasing and asset finance professionals who will participate in the Leasing Foundation Annual Conference.
The Foundation’s activities also include: LFGiving, events that donate to a range of causes; LFResearch, an annual independent research report shared across the industry, and a publishing programme of ebooks and online content using modern web applications; Women in Leasing, to bring together and encourage the development of women in the industry; and Future Leaders, to develop new entrants to the industry.
